Yea im in the states and i dont know if its true or not ... id like to think no but it shure as hell made me think
And in the states they know its on ur id card if u are or not
Im not exactly knolaged in the subject but id assume in places with free health care it dosent work the same seeing as there wouldent be a pricetag on the organs like there is in the usa

I know it is altruistic but the fact is there is a supply and demand problem.
If you a donor its not up to you who gets your bits when you die for the most part.
I am asking if when the decision is being made if being on the organ donor register should be a consideration.
If you are a donor and you need a new heart and your neighbour who is the same age as you and has the same clinical need as you, should you not get the organ over him because you have demonstrated that you are willing to donate and he has not.
What about people who cannot donate down to religious reasons, should they be refused transplant?

but if bill and bob were both doners and both needed a heart whos gets took? without people who dont donate there would be no need for donations because everyone would be constantly swapping organs no?
